NOTICE: UTMSI suffered damage in Hurricane Harvey. Our campus is currently closed as we look to rebuild. Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Introduction:

The Core Facilities Laboratory at The University of Texas at Austin – Marine Science Institute (UT-MSI) is located in Port Aransas, Texas and was established in 2015.  The Core Facilities Laboratory specializes in natural science applications and environmental research.  

The goals of the Core Facilities Laboratory are to:

  1. Provide cost effective analyses
  2. Strict QA/QC oversight
  3. Increased sample throughput

The Core Facilities Laboratory combines hands-on and theoretical student training to provide students with critical analytical chemistry experience to expand education and career opportunities.

The spectrum of analytical capabilities and high sample throughput of the Core Laboratory will significantly enhance environmental research productivity at the Institute, and offer commensurate analytical services to regional customers.

Instrumentation Service provided Cost  
Agilent 6560 Ion-Mobility Quadruple-Time-of-Flight Liquid Chromatography Provide accurate mass detection and molecular discovery of analytes, including but not limited to, proteins, metabolites, lipids, and carbohydrates.
